AMD FX-6130 vs Intel Xeon X5482

Mini Review

AMD FX-6130 advantages

  • More CPU cores on the AMD FX-6130 help to process multiple tasks or heavily multi-threaded applications.
  • Operating frequency of the microprocessor is higher than the frequency of the Xeon X5482 processor.
  • The CPU includes SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The processor incorporates Advanced Encryption Standard technology. These instructions provide hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption, and are beneficial if you need to secure your disk or network data.
  • The microprocessor has AVX and XOP instructions, introduced in the recent past. These extensions are not widely supported by programs yet, but this should improve in future applications.
  • The CPU has FMA4 instruction set extension enabled. The FMA4 technology is only offered on AMD processors, therefore not many software vendors may support it in the future.
  • The processor is not "locked". To get greater performance from the CPU, it can be overclocked with ease.
  • Power consumption of the processor is lower.

Intel Xeon X5482 advantages

  • None

FX-6130 vs X5482 specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important Xeon X5482 and AMD FX-6130 characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, while lighter area is for additional frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
